This is a prospective study of first two hundred consecutive cases of TUR-P, computerised and reviewed. So far, not even a single 'open' prostatectomy has been carried out at this centre. Indications for prostatectomy were acute urinary retention (100 patients), chronic urinary retention (9 patients) and disabling prostatic symptoms (91 patients). There were five deaths in the postoperative period and postoperative complications were observed in thirty-six patients. Eighteen operations were performed for carcinoma of the prostate. Repeat TUR-P was done in two malignant cases. Results were audited accurately and compared with the large series published in the last two decades.
